If you want to use the graphical interface, you must also install an X11 environment.

There are additional prerequisites for some Linux kernels:

  • Fedora on 64-bit computers: because many SAV for Linux executables are 32-bit, you must install some i686-based dependent packages. You can install them with this command: yum install glibc.i686 libgcc.i686 libX11.i686
  • Debian AMD64: if you want to use the graphical interface, you must install the 32-bit X11 libraries. You can install them with this command: sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

I have RHEL 6.4 and kernel 2.6.32-358 will be have to install the 32 bit autoprotect or 64 bit?

Why are installing 32bit autoprotect instead of 64bit in the video is there a reason?

Hi,

You need to install appropriate packages based on the operating System. If operating system is 32 bit you need to install 32bit Auto Protect package. If operating system is 64 bit install 64 bit Auto protect package.

In this video it was 64 bit OS so i installed 64bit Auto Protect package.
